Sometimes, only a 75-inch TV will do. With a sense of scale far beyond smaller 55-inch or 40-inch sizes, and more big-screen models coming out every year, those wanting to go above and beyond will likely be after one of the best 75-inch 4K TVs for their next home television.
While a 75-inch TV may have seemed an absurd proposition even a couple of years ago, improved manufacturing processes and increased demand have made these behemoth screens more affordable and widespread than ever before. (Those after a truly leviathan display will need something like this 98-inch Samsung TV, but good luck affording it.)

That doesn't mean 75-inch TVs are cheap, though. You're still paying on average a lot more than smaller sizes, given the increased materials and higher-spec processors needed to make each pixel pop on such a large screen. If you see a 75-inch TV that's suspiciously affordable, it's likely using older LCD technology that was designed for smaller screens – and therefore won't be delivering the high-impact image quality you're no doubt after in this category.
So what are the best 75-inch 4K TVs, and where can you find them? You'll find everything you need in our buying guide below.
Make sure to check back every few weeks, though, as we'll be updating this page with the latest 75-inch TV reviews – and given what we've seen so far of new sets like the TCL 8-Series 8K QLED, or LG's 8K NanoCell LCD, the top sets below could be beaten at any time.

1. Best 75-inch TV: Samsung Q950TS 8K QLED
An 8K marvel for 2020
The Samsung Q950TS 8K QLED is the flagship 8K set from Samsung this year – and boy do we mean flagship. With a panel boasting 33 million pixels, and cutting-edge upscaling to make even low-quality sources shine, the Q950TS has plenty to recommend it.
The real change from last year's Q950R (the previous top pick in this guide) though, is the design. The Q950TS has an almost imperceptible bezel, giving the impressing of a floating display which – at 75-inch in the UK, and 82-inch in the US – is sure to make an impact in your home.
The OTS+ (Object Tracking Sound) audio technology certainly gives a sense and scale and height to the sound, too – as you'd hope with eight drivers and 70 watts of total power – even if our full tests found the sonic signature was a bit thinner than we'd hoped.
Nonetheless, it's a step up from the 8K QLEDS of days gone by. You'll be paying for the privilege, certainly, and those looking for more reasonably-priced quality may still want to consider the Q80R QLED or its 2020 successor, the Q80T. But if paying £8,000 or $13,000 (around AU$21,400) doesn't put you off, this is one set to really show off with.

2. The runner up: LG C9 OLED Series
An excellent OLED TV, now in a 77-inch size
Screen size: 77-inch | Tuner: Freeview HD | Resolution: 3840 x 2160 | Panel technology: OLED | Smart TV: webOS | Curved: No | Dimensions: 1722 x 1046 x 254mm
Not fussed about 8K? This 77-inch 4K OLED still offers startling crisp images and the vibrant colors and enhanced contrast that OLED panels are known for, with support for Dolby Vision, HLG, and Dolby Atmos audio.
With the well-organized webOS smart platform giving you easy access to the smart TV's many apps and services, and the OLED panel and upgraded a9 Gen 2 processor to make those images really pop – not to mention 2.2. channel speakers – there's very little to criticize in this excellent 2019 LG TV.
It won't go quite as bright as Samsung's QLED TVs, and may fall slightly behind on motion handling – but don't worry, you're still getting an exceptional, color-accurate picture that beats anything you'll see at the cinema. While it's available in 55-inch and 65-inch sizes, this larger model will have the biggest impact of the lot.

3. Best value 75-inch TV: TCL 6-Series (US)
New for 2019, the 75-inch version of the 6-Series is a great value
Screen size: 75-inch | Tuner: N/A | Resolution: 3840 x 2160 | Panel technology: LCD | Smart TV: Yes (Roku TV) | Curved: No | Dimensions: 66.1 x 40.7 x 15.9 inches (W x H x D)
It was announced at CES 2019 that TCL's awesome (and inexpensive) 6-Series would be getting a 75-inch version starting in 2019. The TV offers Dolby Vision support, and comes with Roku TV as its smart platform – though this size model is available exclusively to Best Buy in the US.
While TCL's 6-Series didn't impress us quite as much as the other TVs on this list, it is a competitive screen at its price point, offering bright, colorful HDR and exceptionally clear images.
If you have deep pockets and a checkbook filled with blank checks, we’d still tell you to reach deep and shell out for something higher on this list. But if the TCL 6 Series is what's in your budget, it will provide exceptional performance for the price.

4. Mid-range pick: LG Nano90 LCD TV
A super-size LCD screen to take on OLED (almost)
LG's best sets usually feature OLED panels, but the Nano90 is an exception as the flagship 4K LCD set for 2020 – offering premium features, excellent processing, and a massive size for a significantly lower price than the 77-inch OLED TVs out there.
LCD is still the cheaper way to go, and you are having to put up with some issues you won't see on OLED: the Nano90 suffers some mild backlight flickering, for one, though the black levels are still very impressive for an LCD set.
The Nano90's wide viewing angles, strong color performance, and reliable webOS smart platform all make it a 75-inch screen that's easy to recommend – that is, if you can't stump up the cash for a (let's admit it, superior) OLED model like the C9 above.

5. Most affordable: Hisense H8G Quantum (US)
A great 4K TV from Hisense
At just $1,299 for a 75-inch model, the Hisense H8G Quantum Series is a highly affordable choice for super-sized screen.
At double of the price of the 65-inch model, though, there's a real price uptick, and those after a true saving may wish to check out the 65-inch model instead. That said, the Hisense H8G offers a lot at any size, with Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos support, along with a bright and colorful picture set to give you a great night in whatever you're watching.
The design of the set itself could be more inspiring, but you get what you pay for, and we'd rather Hisense skimp on the casing materials than the panel or processor.

TechRadar's 75-inch TV buying advice
First and foremost, be really careful about TV sales that sound too good to be true. If you see a 75-inch 4K TV for around $600 / £600, it's probably going to let you down in terms of picture performance.
So who's the main culprit that causes ugly images in the 75-inch range? Bad backlighting. While the cheapies use edge-lit LED panels that produce poor black levels and contrast, the bigger brands opt for either direct, full array LED panels – or in the case of LG, OLED panels. Both illuminate across the whole screen, and create both luscious color and 4K clarity.
Currently, our favorite 75-inch TVs are LG's series of OLEDs, which boast exceptional black levels and premium HDR. They're perfect for a dark room experience, like a home cinema, though for brightly-lit rooms you may want to consider Samsung's QLED TV series. Then there's Sony, whose efforts are impossible to ignore, and a few more affordable brands to tempt you to buy a 75-inch TV for relatively small spend.
Not sure where to start? Take a look at our favorite 75-inch 4K TVs right now, listed below for your convenience. Each series in this list has been tested and approved by our expert team of reviewers, so you can buy with confidence.
